Degree show hits London - Students from the University of Gloucestershire have pulled off a major coup by holding their degree show at the Covent Garden Film Studios, on Mercer Street in central London. The show, subtitled Unleashed, will be the first ever photographic exhibition to be held at the venue.
There will be a private view on Tuesday 5th June and the exhibition will be open to the public on 6th, 7th and 8th June between 6pm and 9pm.
Unleashed showcases 23 new and innovative photographers from the University's editorial and advertising photography course. The photographers cover a wide range of subject matter, from fashion to landscape and still life to abstract.
Fujifilm Professional provided the students with rolls of Fujichrome Provia 400X for a project that formed part of their degree. Course leader, John Ingledew explained: "One of the key parts of the University's work is to prepare our students for the workplace. With this in mind I set a brief for our 3rd year students around the theme of 'Time'. I chose 'Time' because it's so intrinsic to photography - from the settings on the camera to the recording of a moment of time. Each student submitted images or a series of images along with an accompanying piece of text explaining the image and how they used the film." A selection of the images from this project will feature in the exhibition.
